The following passage describes the sickening practice of sex slavery. How can anyone think it is moral to sell your own daughter as a sex slave?
When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.(Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)
What does the Bible say about beating slaves? It says you can beat both male and female slaves with a rod so hard that as long as they don't die right away you are cleared of any wrong doing.
When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.(Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)
You would think that Jesus and the New Testament would have a different view of slavery, but slavery is still approved of in the New Testament, as the following passages show.
Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ.(Ephesians 6:5 NLT)
Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them.(1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)
.....You seem to 'pull' out of yer hat jest vot you need when it comess to the Old Testament.
ListenUP, ya schidt-for-brains. BobLoblah has always said that the Old Testament had many, many faults.....but for the times it was what it was. One can imagine what the world would have been like back then without a book of laws based on what it was 'with' a book of laws. The Old Testament was designed to keep people in line. Nothing more. Nothing less.
...And then came Jesus Christ, who set the precedent of how man should behave. He preached that 'Forgiveness' was the greatest gift. That greater than ALL the Commandments was to love one another. That to love one's neighbor more than thyself. And to suffer the little children to come unto Him.....and to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's and to GOD that which is GOD's.
...'for nobody comes to the Father but through Me, and nobody comes to Me except through the Father'.
...'Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but My words shall never pass away'.
Ps:.....hateful, hypocritical hAtheists like you are the very first ones to make use of the Old Testament to try to 'comfort' your own selves in your decisions to convince yourselves that there is NO GOD.....while deep within yourselves you know that you are pissing against the wind.
..You are ALL hat and NO hay.
...go and save a horse; ride a cowboy.
